Kyle Train has been named general manager of Hilton Head National RV Resort in Bluffton, with responsibility for daily operations of the 97-acre RV resort that opened earlier this year.

The promotion of Train was announced in December by Bill Layman, vice president of operations for Scratch Golf Inc. 

Scratch Golf is a subsidiary of The United Company, a diversified holdings enterprise whose holdings include RV resorts and golf courses, including the renowned championship Hilton Head National Golf Club that sits adjacent to the new RV Resort.

“Train has excellent management and communications skills that will provide value to our day-to-day operations,” Layman said. “He will have leadership responsibility for operations, marketing and guest experiences.”

A native of Toronto, Canada, Train is a graduate of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he earned a degree in commerce. He is an accomplished business owner, public speaker and golfer.  

Train founded a golf instruction company, Fewer Bogeys Golf, after college, and comes to his new position following a year with the United Company based in Bristol, Virginia.

“United Company has been very supportive, and it’s a privilege to work in the RV industry where I see potential for tremendous growth over the coming decade,” said Train. “Recent studies have shown more than 80% of American households plan to spend more time outdoors in the near future, and the RV industry is a leader in serving this intention.”

Train is eager to begin his new position.

“At Hilton Head National, we are implementing fresh ideas that will highlight the exceptional features of our new RV property in ways that will endear our hospitality and leisure brand identity with our guests,” he said. “We are looking forward to its becoming known as the finest RV Resort in the Southeast.”

Hilton Head National RV Resort opened in January of 2022.

Complementing its 97 acres are an array of special amenities. These include a lazy-river pool complex, children’s playground, a two-acre, fully enclosed dog park, two miles of walking trails, clubhouse and chef-staffed restaurant and tiki bar.  

There is also a secluded adults-only area that has a separate pool, hot tub and clubhouse bar.  

The resort is open to Class A, B and C motorhomes, as well as 5th wheels and other towables. It is the only RV Resort in the immediate Hilton Head Island area that welcomes towables.
